Gathering Hymn – Lift High the Cross
Charlie Orr, Organist

Lift high the cross, the love of Christ proclaim
till all the world adore his sacred name.

1 Come, Christians, follow where our Savior trod,
Our King victorious, Christ, the Son of God. [Refrain]

2 Each newborn servant of the Crucified
Bears on the brow the seal of him who died. [Refrain]

3 O Lord, once lifted on the glorious tree,
Your death has bought us life eternally. [Refrain]

4 So shall our song of triumph ever be:
Praise to the Crucified for victory! [Refrain]

Call To Worship

Praise the Lord!
Sing to the Lord a new song, his praise in the assembly of the faithful.
Let Israel be glad in its Maker; let the children of Zion rejoice in their King.
Let them praise his name with dancing, making melody to him with tambourine and lyre.
For the Lord takes pleasure in his people; he adorns the humble with victory.
Let the faithful exult in glory; let them sing for joy on their couches.
Let the high praises of God be in their throats and two-edged swords in their hands,
to execute vengeance on the nations and punishment on the peoples,
to bind their kings with fetters and their nobles with chains of iron,
to execute on them the judgment decreed. This is glory for all his faithful ones.
Praise the Lord!


I Stand Amazed

Chorus 1
How marvelous how wonderful
And my song shall ever be
How marvelous how wonderful
Is my Savior’s love for me

Verse 1
I stand amazed in the presence
Of Jesus the Nazarene
And wonder how He could love me
A sinner condemned unclean

Verse 2
For me it was in the garden
He prayed not My will but Thine
He had no tears for His own griefs
But sweat drops of blood for mine

Verse 3
In pity angels beheld Him
And came from the world of light
To comfort Him in the sorrows
He bore for my soul that night

Verse 4
He took my sins and my sorrows
He made them His very own
He bore the burden to Calvary
And suffered and died alone

Verse 5
When with the ransomed in glory
His face I at last shall see
‘Twill be my joy through the ages
To sing of His love for me


Jesus, I Come

Verse 1
Out of my bondage sorrow and night
Jesus I come Jesus I come
Into Thy freedom gladness and light
Jesus I come to Thee
Out of my sickness into Thy health
Out of my want and into Thy wealth
Out of my sin and into Thyself
Jesus I come to Thee

Verse 2
Out of my shameful failure and loss
Jesus I come Jesus I come
Into the glorious gain of Thy cross
Jesus I come to Thee
Out of earth’s sorrows into Thy balm
Out of life’s storms and into Thy calm
Out of distress to jubilant psalm
Jesus I come to Thee

Verse 3
Out of unrest and arrogant pride
Jesus I come Jesus I come
Into Thy blessed will to abide
Jesus I come to Thee
Out of myself to dwell in Thy love
Out of despair into raptures above
Upward for aye on wings like a dove
Jesus I come to Thee

Verse 4
Out of the fear and dread of the tomb
Jesus I come Jesus I come
Into the joy and light of Thy home
Jesus I come to Thee
Out of the depths of ruin untold
Into the peace of Thy sheltering fold
Ever Thy glorious face to behold
Jesus I come to Thee

Sovereign Over Us

Verse 1
There is strength within the sorrow
There is beauty in our tears
And You meet us in our mourning
With a love that casts out fear

Verse 2
You are working in our waiting
Sanctifying us
When beyond our understanding
You’re teaching us to trust

Chorus 1
Your plans are still to prosper
You’ve not forgotten us
You’re with us in the fire and the flood
Faithful forever perfect in love
You are sov’reign over us

Verse 3
You are wisdom unimagined
Who could understand Your ways
Reigning high above the heavens
Reaching down in endless grace

Verse 4
You’re the lifter of the lowly
Compassionate and kind
You surround and You uphold me
And Your promises are my delight

Even what the enemy means for evil
You turn it for our good
You turn it for our good
And for Your glory
Even in the valley You are faithful
You’re working for our good
You’re working for our good
And for Your glory

Faithful forever perfect in love
You are sov’reign over us
